Our Opening Day Prediction

THUGS OF HINDOSTAN is a historical fiction action-adventure-drama set in the era on 1795 where British were on the start of expanding their empire with their British East India Company. We believe the film will go on to do tremendous business at the box office. Here are thr factors that we believe will work in its favour:


The film tells a historical fiction story set in 1795 in Hindustan, where Indian bandits (Thugs) posed a serious challenge to the expanding British East India Company which had seized control of large parts of India. The film follows a band of Thugs led by Khudabaksh Azaad (Amitabh Bachchan), who poses a grave threat to the British East India Company as he aspires to free the country from the British. The film being an action drama, a genre that has been ever prominant in India, it is bound to impress the fans of the genre and also those who love being taken on such a grand adventure. This larger than life film is sure to bring the audiences into the halls.


This film boasts of a massive star cast which has been another reason why the film has been much awaited. The film stars Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif, Fatima Sana Shaikh & Lloyd Owen in the leads. This is also going to be the first film where we get to see Amitabh and Aamir come together on screen. Amitabh Bachchan as Khudabaksh Azaad is a commander of the Thugs. Aamir Khan as Firangi Mallah is a small-time Thug from Awadh. Katrina Kaif as Suraiyya plays the role of a dancer and performer. Fatima Sana Shaikh as Zafira is a warrior-archer Thug. Lloyd Owen as John Clive, a ruthless British East India Company officer plays the antagonist in this film.


The film belongs to the action adventure genre. Such films are usually larger than life and officers to take the audiences on a grand adventure. Earlier we have seen films like BAAHUBALI which have worked great with the audiences and offered the audiences a visual treat and drove them to the theatres. With THUGS OF HINDOSTAN being of the same genre, the film promises to be an entertainer.


The makers have decided not to release all the song videos at the same time as to keep up the curiosity that has been there among the audiences and they can enjoy them while watching the movie. They have just released teasers of the songs as to what they can expect when they see the film and which has in turn definitely piqued the curiosity of the audiences. The songs, however sound great and promise to entertain the audiences.
